I love giving unique gifts that I know are going to be a hit. But sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what the people on my list will like the most. With a list full of tech loving family and friends, I knew I had the perfect gift when I previewed The HP Sprocket 2-in-1 printer at Type-A Social Media Conference two months ago.
Pictures on the Go
The HP Sprocket 2-in-1 is an instant digital photo printer with a built-in camera. It really is the perfect gift for just about anyone on your list. The first thing I loved about it was the convenience factor. It’s small; just a bit larger than my cellphone which makes it extremely easy to put in a jacket pocket, backpack, or handbag (or if you’re like me, a giant tote bag that has EVERYTHING in it) and take anywhere. It requires no batteries and charges with a USB cable.
Easy Bluetooth Connectivity
The HP Sprocket app connects the Sprocket 2-in-1 to your smartphone via Bluetooth. From there you can print pictures from your social networks such as Facebook or Instagram. No social networks? No problem. You can print photos from the photo gallery on your phone.
Did I mention the Fun?
In addition to the ability to crop and edit photos, the app includes some fun filters, so you can add a bit of pizzazz to your pictures. You can also text edit it to add words to the picture. I may have had a little bit of fun with the girls when I was trying it out.
There’s a camera built into the printer, you don’t even NEED your smartphone. The Sprocket 2-in-1 has an SD card slot so you can save the pictures.
Additional HP Sprocket 2-in-1 Features
- Uses HP Zink Paper
Zink paper is perfect for on the go printing as it uses “zero ink” so you never have to buy ink for the Sprocket 2-in-1.
- Up to 313 x 400 dpi (dots per inch) color resolution
Gives you high-quality instant photos.
- Simple paper load
Open the top of the printer, drop paper in, and start printing. Could it get any easier than that?
- Built-in 5 MP camera
Equipped with LED dual color flash camera for capturing and printing pictures no matter where you are.
Each HP Sprocket 2-in-1 comes with a pack of sticky back Zink Paper (10 sheets), warranty sheet, regulatory sheet, a wrist strap, and USB cable.
I loved playing with and testing out the Sprocket 2-in-1 so much… well, let’s just say I might have to keep the Sprocket 2-in-1 for myself.
It’s not Christmas yet so there’s still time to grab your own HP Sprocket 2-in-1 for yourself (or someone else on your list). The HP 2-in-1 sprocket is available now at Best Buy.
I was just telling someone about this the other day. You should totally keep it ????????
I think I’m going to. I can definitely see multiple fun uses beyond the typical millennial gift. (ie: Us “old” people love tech stuff too!)
